Subject to approval and funding of this preferred option, it is hoped to commence the related statutory processes during the next financial year. Other schemes which will be taken forward include provision of roundabouts at the A3 Dollingstown crossroads and on the A50 Gilford Road at Drumlin Hill, Portadown. New footways are also programmed for this year from Coleman Park to the bus stop on the Derrymacash Road, and around the junction of Moygannon lane on to the Moygannon Road,” said Mr Monaghan. At the meeting Mr Monaghan discussed the priorities for road improvements in 2007/08.
He said: “Subject to availability of land and funding, road improvement schemes will be carried out at Bachelors Walk, Portadown, on the Drumlin Road, Donaghcloney, and on the Cornakinnegar Road, Lurgan. Which of us has not had to endure slow and disrupted journeys because of congestion caused by those who thoughtlessly park where they shouldn’t? Pedestrians and motorists alike have also had to face unnecessary dangers trying to negotiate the obstacles that illegal parkers put in their way.
At today’s event the Minister also unveiled the new uniform that will be worn by traffic attendants and paid tribute to the work that many of them had carried out as traffic wardens. The Department has not set NCP any targets for numbers of tickets to be issued. Nor are there ticket targets for traffic attendants to achieve. If fewer tickets are issued this means that our aim of reducing the amount of illegal parking is being achieved. I am grateful to all those people whose land was required to facilitate the scheme and the co-operation of those who are directly affected during the construction period.
